Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Handling Data-Mayfield High The purpose of this investigation is to find out whether the weight has a relationship with height. The outcome of this investigation will be useful to health services like surgeries and hospitals. The health services can use this information to make human beings fitter so they can live longer. The outcome of this investigation will only apply to the pupils in Mayfield High because the population I will get my sample from is Mayfield High which is a fictions school but the data is from a real school. Mayfield has a total of 1200 students. YEAR GROUP NUMBER OF BOYS NUMBER OF GIRLS TOTAL 7 150 150 300 8 145 125 270 9 120 140 260 10 100 100 200 11 84 86 170 These are all the records of all the students of Mayfield High. As you can see there is too many students for me to use in my investigation it will take way too much time so I will use a Stratified Random Sample of 5% from each year group to ensure my sample is made up in the same mix as the whole school I have also adjusted the number of boys and girls in each year to reflect the balance in each year group. ...read more.
